Fodor's Review

Step back into 19th-century Hokkaido and see the herring-fleet dormitory, where 60 fishermen appear to have just folded up their futons and left for a day's work, or the village clinic where a Dr. Kondo seems to have vanished, leaving his scary-looking birthing table and books behind. It's easy to spend a few hours walking in and out of 60 historic homes, shops, farms, and offices brought here from all over Hokkaido. This park museum very effectively depicts how ordinary

Japanese lived and worked under Japan's policy to develop Ezo into Hokkaido before the Russians could. A ride down the main street in a horse-drawn trolley (in summer) or sleigh (in winter) costs ¥200. Ask for the excellent free English guide at the ticket counter. The village is about 10 km (6 miles) outside Sapporo; the easiest access is via an hour-long bus ride (¥260) from Sapporo Station or a 10-minute taxi ride from Shin-Sapporo Station.
